Histadrut Delegates Give $1 Million Toward $5 Million Goal for Next Year

NEW YORK (JTA)—Delegates
to the four-day annual convention
of the National Committee for
Labor Israel Sunday presented
nearly $1.000,000 in cash toward
the $5,000,000 goal for the 1966
Histadait campaign. The goal had
been adopted by the convention
at an earlier session.
The funds will be applied toward
the educational and welfare pro-
gram in Israel sustained by the
NCLI in partnership with Hista-
drut, Israel's federation of labor.
An additional $2,000,000 goal for
the American Histadrut Develop-
ment Foundation was adopted.
The quota is based on the over-
all budget of the Histadrut Assist-
ance Fund in Israel, which will
amount to $10,630,000 in 1966, ac-
cording to the report by Yehoshua
Levy, Histadrut treasurer.
The convention called upon all
affiliated organizations and Jewish

country to mobilize the money for
this ramified program. Special
emphasis will be placed on spon-
soring major health and cultural
projects in immigrant communi-
ties in Israel and on the Histadrut
scholarship fund for secondary and
vocational training, according to
Dr. Sol Stein. national director.
President Johnson extended
greetings to the convention in a
message to Rabbi Jacob J. Wein-

Committee for Labor Israel. "Over
